Birth control packagining error may have lead to pregnancies

In 2011, there were eight brands of birth control pills recalled by Qalitest Pharmaceuticals. There was an error on the packaging, which resulted in the weekly tablet order being reverses.

The placebo pills, which are meant for women to take during menstruation, were flipped 180 degrees. Women must take birth control pills in the right order in order for them to be effective.

What to know about safety regulations at Florida hotel pools

This is the time of year when people from all over the world flock to Florida to get a break from the winter. However, for too many people, these vacations take a devastating turn when an accident at their hotel leaves them reeling from a catastrophic accident.

Many of these accidents are suffered in swimming pools. People can get hurt, suffer brain damage or drown when proper pool safety regulations are not observed. If you or a loved one has recently been injured in an accident at a hotel swimming pool, then it can be wise to have an idea of what state laws say about pool safety in order to assess your legal options.

Proposal made to strike 'alien' from immigration laws

Immigration is one of the more contentious and political subjects in the U.S. People form hard and fast opinions about this issue based on their own experiences and changing minds can be an extraordinarily difficult task. Changing the laws is even more difficult.

Immigration laws are in place to define the rights of citizens and the legal avenues for becoming a permanent resident. They are also the backbone of a system that establishes who can and cannot enter and what they can and cannot do when they are in the U.S. As time goes by, the international landscape changes and political beliefs shift which is why it is crucial to reassess immigration laws regularly. Recently, for example, a bill was proposed to strike the word "alien" from immigration laws.

Fighting to preserve the rights of individuals who are facing deportation

The United States' immigration policies and laws are notoriously complex and mired in various bureaucratic requirements and restrictions. Consequently, individuals who, for a variety of reasons, are seeking to come to the U.S. often feel overwhelmed and discouraged by the process.

People from other countries may seek to come to or immigrate to the U.S. for a number of reasons including to study, for employment purposes, to be with a fiancée, to be with family, to attempt to carve out a better life and for asylum purposes. Whatever the case may be, an attorney who specializes in immigration law can provide valuable advice and assistance throughout the entire process.

Lawsuit cites defective medical device

Having surgery can be a stressful, frightening experience. However, it can be the difference between life and death or pain and relief. In most cases, people feel much better after surgery. Sadly, for some patients, a procedure doesn't go as planned or an inadequate medical device is used and a patient ends up feeling worse than they did before an operation.

It is the latter situation that recently led to a lawsuit in another state. It is a case that sounds unfortunately similar to many others in recent years and it involves a woman, a surgery and an allegedly defective medical device

What visas are available for immigrant and nonimmigrant workers?

The United States is a destination for many workers across the world. There are unique opportunities here that draw people from other countries for both permanent and temporary positions, and each of these workers will need to secure a visa in order to work in the U.S. lawfully.

However, not every worker needs the same type of visa. There are multiple categories of employment-based visas available and the type of visa you need may be different from one that another person needs. It will depend on the kind of job you have or are seeking as well as whether the job is permanent or temporary.

Can I file a legal claim after losing a loved one in an accident?

Any time someone close to us passes away, the grief can be overwhelming and it can make it all but impossible to think of anything besides how significantly our own lives are affected by the loss.

At some point, many people also find themselves concerned with holding the party who was responsible for a loss accountable. We know that doing so cannot bring a loved one back or replace them, but figuring out who or what caused the death and holding that person liable for the resulting damages can help you find some relief. In some cases and depending on your relationship to the decedent, you may be eligible to do this by filing a wrongful death claim.

Act fast if a loved one is detained by ICE

There are many people living in Florida who were not born in the U.S. and may not even have the proper documentation to be living and/or working in this country at the moment. Many of these people are in very difficult positions. Generally speaking, they want to secure the appropriate visas, stay with their families and earn a living to provide a better life for themselves and their loved ones.

However, this can prove to be an enormous challenge thanks to the complex and harsh immigration system in this country. Because of this, many people are at risk of being picked up by authorities and brought to a detention center for immigration violations.

Can I (or my loved one) apply for a U visa?

Despite the massive efforts being made to stop or cut down on international crime and crime right here in the U.S., people still get caught up in illegal activity. Getting arrested, charged and convicted of a crime can come with a whole host of negative consequences, including deportation or removal from the U.S.

For a wide variety of reasons, people come to Florida and other states in the country and engage in criminal activities. However, if you have engaged in certain crimes or are the victim of certain crimes, you may actually be eligible for a U visa which can allow you to stay in the U.S. It is important to note, though, that U visa application and eligibility requirements can be quite complicated.

Major bulletin error leads to confusion for 50,000 immigrants

Any person who is in the U.S. on a visa or is waiting to come to the U.S. for a job or to reconnect with non-immediate relatives checks monthly bulletins published on the State Department's website regularly. These bulletins include information on priority dates and let people know when they are able to either submit an application for a visa to come to the U.S. or change their status to a lawful permanent resident.

The bulletins kick-off the last step of obtaining a green card. This means a status adjustment and greater flexibility and protections for people who become permanent residents. However, a recent mix-up in the September bulletin led to thousands of immigrants confused about whether they can proceed with the process or not.
